Great call-in from Pynd. Hearing the daily struggles of the rally as it happens really adds a new dimension of understanding to what the riders go through.

Thanks again, Nate.

Thanks PM and Pyndon for the call-in!

Sounds like a tough day with altitude and weather. Great that Pyndon fixed his electrical problem so fast.

Hopefully he gets a decent nights sleep and a good stage tomorrow.

Another thanks to PM for the call-in. It sounds like he's had a tough day but still sounds chipper, which is great news. Let's hope he has a better day today....

What an amazing pic, thanks for posting.

Just caught up with his call in.......did you hear the CHIRPY GIGGLES!!!!! After the day he's had I wasn't expecting him to sound so bright and hearing how his heart sank when the bike stopped i can't imagine how that felt. I don't think my nerves could have taken it.

Hope he has a better day today and less , warmer and even more enjoyable and whats with all the rain....enough already

On to stage 8 we go

Only a sister would take that and run with it.


That grin pretty much sums it up, don't it?

Safe ride, Lyndon.

Thank you Pyndon & PM for the call.

I hope Pyndon was able to get a good nights rest. Even without being in the biv personally you could tell he was looking at his sleep pad while talking with us on the phone.

Really special he takes time to bring us to the Dakar with him.:

If anyone thought it was too late to help Lyndon out a bit with a support package... it's not! We're still shipping them, and he can still use the help!

Speaking from experience, coming back to reality to find out that folks have helped you while you were on the race is meaningful at both a personal and financial level- the hole isn't as deep as you thought, and you know that what it meant to you was understood by others.

Back to regularly scheduled programming...

Plus, Lyndon's version of the Klim Inferno jacket is one of the nicest looking pieces of kit around!
